Our Dock

The east wharf varies in width from 47 m at the outer (south) end to 60 m at its widest point at the north end of the paper shed. The main wharf is 140 m long. Including the section of the approach that was rebuilt in 1992 however, the length of the area now available is about 190 m (625 ft) long.

The front face of the wharf employs timber fender piles where the timber bearing piles are adjacent to the face of wharf, generally at the outer end.

However, the “strongpoint” areas supported on steel pipe piles use a concrete cope wall and modular rubber arch fenders.

The outer end of the wharf includes warping dolphins which were added in 1992 to aid berthing of the ships. Dolphin construction is steel pipe piles supporting a heavy concrete pile cap.

The west zone comprises the area under the paper shed (see photo below) as well as a small apron on the west side of the shed.
A structural assessment, as well as a complete wharf inspection were completed in July of 2013. A tender for the repair of deficiencies reported has been awarded and repairs are commencing March31st with planned completion late spring 2014.

Water depth at wharf is approximately 7 meters.
